Disadvantages: resturant was overpriced
This is my review for The Hilton hotel in Blackpool.
My fiancee decided to treat me for my birthday by taking me to Blackpool as neither of us has ever been, so i went on the internet and looked into all the different hotels and bed and breakfasts to see which was the best value for money.
I came across the Hilton and I was very impressed by the price, we had a double room and stayed for two nights.
We had the choice of refundable or non-refundable breakfasts, refundable cost 198 pounds (sorry that theres no pound symbol, it doesn't work on my computer), or non-refundable which costs 170 pounds.
We went for the non-refundable option.
I was able to book it all online but they give you a contact number so if you prefer you can book via phone.
They charge for the whole amount when you first book it and then they give you a page to print out which has the confirmation of the booking and also details of the booking.
They ask that you keep this and present it on arrival.
The checking in time is 3pm but we got there at half past 8 in the morning and we knew we wouldn't be able to check in but we were hoping that we could leave our luggage with them until we came back later, but to our surprise we were told that our room was ready and we could check in straight away.
Our room was big and open and the view overlooked the sea.
There was a large television which showed free digital channels or if you wanted to watch a selection of newly released films you just had to go down to the reception and pay for them.
There was a kettle and a large selection of tea and coffee, there were also scottish shortbread biscuits, sugar and sweetner.
The bathroom was also large, with a bath and shower.
shower gel, shampoo and conditioner was also provided.
During our stay we visited the bar, which had two large televisions on both sides.
they had wi-fi in the bar so that people could get accsess to the internet while you stayed there.
We ate at the resturant on the first night, it was a carvery, with starters and deserts which you had to go up and serve yourself.
We didn't eat much and only had 2 drinks but when we got the bill it was about 52 pounds, neither of us were that happy about the price but paid anyway and justy decided to go somewhere else for the next night.
Apart from that one incident our stay was extremley pleasent, all of the staff are very polite and cheerful and they all seem very happy to help you.
When we ate our breakfast, whenever we were finished and had an empty plate or glass they would swiftly take it away and ask if we wanted anything else.
Also when we left for breakfast on the first morning, when we came back the room had been cleaned and we were given fresh towels and more tea, coffee and shampoo.
The concierge was very attentive and phoned taxi's for us whenever we wanted to go anywhere.
All in all it was a very enjoyable stay and apart from the meal, the majority of it was reasonably priced and a good value for money.
Although we didn't use the extra facilities there was also a fitness centre and a spa area. The Hotel also has conference rooms for business meetings.
